Clare and Richard gathered over 250 friends coming from all over the world to attend their elegant Paris ballroom wedding in The City of Love. Guests traveled from around the world – Canada, Hong Kong, the UK, the US, South Africa, just to name a few – and were a reflection of the couple’s international backgrounds.
Music, entertainment and whimsical details were a major focus of the design. The couple wanted the reception decor to fit with the classic Parisian setting, but also add a touch of whimsy: a birds & branches theme in the dining room, custom tea tins with the couples favorite green tea blend, and a tropical inspired photocall featuring the bride’s favorite flower, the bird of paradise. A surprise beat-box performance provided an unexpected transition after dinner and a full live band kept guests dancing until late in the night.
